Implementing a new 0-25 special needs system

The new system for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities was launched on 1 September 2014. 

To support this, the Department for Education has produced some supplementary resources for providers to use:

An information pack containing a briefing on the reforms that colleges can use with students and parents, a short guide to the Education, Health and Care plan process specifically for colleges and a checklist for implementing the reforms.

  • A set of slides which providers can use as they wish with staff and governors to help prepare them for the reforms.
  • Edward Timpson MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Children and Families also answers your questions on the changes.
